This has got to be the strangest illustration I have seen in an article on Christianity and Homosexuality.
It has the typical explanations why the Bible does not really mean what it says but it is all due to cultural differences and an attempt to attack pagan customs.
It also include this:
Those who support the orthodox argument against not only the ordination of gays but homosexual practice itself look to both the scriptures and natural law.
Father John Fleming of Adelaide, an Anglican vicar-turned-Catholic priest, says the church’s opposition to homosexual behaviour, while understanding homosexual inclination, is simple: it undermines the essential purpose of sex, which is to procreate. Not every sexual act must lead to procreation, he says, but it must not prevent it, either.
He quotes Anglican bishop Charles Gore, who, after the 1930 Lambeth conference of Anglican leaders that approved the use of artificial contraception, concluded that if the church allowed sexual intercourse without the possibility of procreation, it could also support homosexuality.
After the approval of contraception it was never a matter of if the Anglicans would accept homosexuality, but when. Other Protestant Churches who are unhappy with the decision don’t realize that their own foundation has been weakened by endorsing contraception.
